OBJECTIVE To study the relationship between parenchymal head volume (PHV) and intracranial volume (ICV), and to compare the ability of these two measurements to reflect the association between maximum mature brain volume and late-life cognition. METHODS An elderly sample of humans with a range of cognitive functions from normality, via mild cognitive impairment (MCI) to dementia (mean age 78.6, S.D. 2.8; mean MMSE 25.4, S.D. 4.2) was examined. Head-to-head measurements of ICV and parenchymal… CONTINUE READING
